Windward Leeward’ exhibit blows into Cape Ann Museum

By Gloucester Daily Times Staff

On Saturday, March 6, Cape Ann Museum sails back from its winter hiatus with a reception to mark the opening of “Windward Leeward,” a stunning exhibition of ‘Dory Era’ paintings by one of New England’s most highly regarded contemporary maritime artists, Peter Vincent. His still, starkly composed images of Gloucester’s long-gone seafaring world are the artist’s reverent and powerfully moving tribute to his subject matter, and have won him numerous awards, including Mystic Seaport Museum’s first annual Thomas Hoyne Award. His “Men who go down to the sea” do not just inhabit, but haunt his works, as they continue to haunt their native harbor. The painting’s flat, muted tones suggest the calm before the storm; the perilous power of the sea to be at once livelihood and graveyard.

    I love Peter’s work. I have two small watercolors that I bought probably 20 years ago and I treasure them.

    Beautiful picture. Man I wish I could draw or paint. Oh well. I guess we can’t all have that talent.
